I just had an issue where users were directly added to the ACL of a folder. I created a group, added them to the group, added the group to the ACL of the folder and then removed the users and pressed apply. 18 of about 20 users were unaffected, but for some reason two users were denied access. I check the effective permissions tab and they were there. I added both users explicitly again.
i just did a fresh install of ubuntu 12.04 - 32 bit on my vps.
then i created a new user and added it into "sudo" group to allow sudo permission. then i tried to sudo to see whether it works or not. then i got "sudo: must be setuid root" warning. after googling for sometime i found out that /urs/bin/sudo file must be given chmod +s permission to make sudo work.

I am trying to get around a permission issue I am having. The only reasonable option (other than ACL) is to add the user that needs access to the system group of the user that has access. Yes, the user that has access was birthed as a system user.
All the users resides in one group right? I see that sometimes a particular user cannot access a file. Recently, I faced this issue with Jenkins. I was trying to fire a build via. Jenkins. I could see that Jenkins is a group itself after reading /etc/groups. The first field I guess is a group. How can I give this group jenkins a permission to do what root or my other login-id can do?
I can't seem to get my USB devices to show up in the Removable Devices list. I remembered having some similar issue with VirtualBox long ago and I added my user account to the VirtualBox user group or something similar to fix the issue.
I've got a problem with my forum platform being unable to install modifications, as it complains the "Packages" directory isn't writeable. It's chmodded to 0777, so it's not a permission issue, but an ownership issue.
The user www-data is part of the www-data group, and all files under /var/www/example.com are owned by www-data:www-data
I've set up a SFTP server using OpenSSH. After following a guide online, I set up a group called sftponly and added a user to this group. I used the Match group switch in the sshd_config file to match the group so that user's in that group could only connect for SFTP sessions. I set up the chroot to point to "/home/%u".
